JUST FOR YOU

I was able to participate in not only Bloggers Challenge #172 this week with a sketch challenge, but also using a freebie digi image that was offered by Faith over at Designed2Delight.

I was terribly disappointed with how the colors of this card photographed. The apples and paper are actually red, not the pink color that it looks like here.

Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, and DP from a retired series called Summer Picnic are all by Stampin' UP. Antique Linen distress ink by Tim Holtz was used to soften the bright white paper using a color duster brush.

Along with this cute seasonal digi image, I used the Aida Background stamp and the little greeting is from Stampin Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes set. Copics W3, R22, R24, R29, E25, E27, E31 and YG45 were used for coloring the images. Stop by and see what everyone else in Bloggers Challenge came up with for this weeks sketch challenge.

Clara,
This is so pretty and so fall like. I wish I could see it in person to get the full effect of the colors. I adore the distressed effect on the white.
